Elementary schoolers write about natural objects found outdoors. They employ a variety of techniques in their writing: comparison, personification, metaphor, and simile. Depending on what card they draw (with the techniques written on them), pupils construct a sentence about their natural object. For example, "The tree was a grandfather, bent over and ancient." Once the sentences are composed, drawings are made to accompany them, and a class book is compiled.
